My home is situated in a location which you can walk from kandy in ten minutes.Outside the room area there is a nice balcony to the mountain view. We also have a platform above our house for meditation, yoga, and Auyrvedic oil massage. We also do trips to the cultural sites, national parks, knuckles mountain tracking and other trips round Sri Lanka. In case if this room is booked please go to my listing i have four more rooms to share.For any information I am always there with 30 yr experience.
It's a room inside the main house which has both air conditioner and a fan. The wooden deck that overlooks the beautiful Hantana mountain range. The guests have a restaurant are where they could bring their food and have it. Ayurvedic massage is done on request.
Our place is located in a very convenient place which is about 1 km away from the city centre. It's just about 100 meters to a supermarket, food outlets, laundry, pharmacy and bakers. Plenty of tuk tuks and buses available to the city, if you are not tired its just 10 minutes walk to the city centre. Railway station is about 700 meters away. A tuk tuk from the main city center would charge Rs 200/- to 250/-. A tuk tuk from the railway station would cost Rs 200/-
  • Bernard and family were lovely and friendly. They were excellent hosts, willing to help with whatever concerns or questions I had. They even upgraded me for free from a room in the house to the apartment as it was vacant the evening I was there! Breakfast was superb - a feast in itself. I thoroughly enjoyed my time here!

  • The whole family was awesome... super friendly and they organized everything for us. The communication was super good. Bernard helped us booking the train from Kandy to Ella and this was more than amazing because we didn’t pay that much like other tourist and we were save with the ticket. They also dropped us at the train station. The breakfast was super delicious, I didn’t know lots of the food and tasted everything and all was soooo nice. Thank you for everything :)

    Christine2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed for 3 nights with Bernard and his lovely wife and would absolutely recommend this place!

  • It was a great stay at bernard. He and his family were really friendly, the breakfast with this amazing view was also great. Bernard organized daytrips for us and also he picked us up from the airport. We can complety reommend this host to everybody. Thanks for having us :)

    Lea2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay for two nights at "Great view at Bernards" was way better than expected. He and his family were really welcoming and heart warming, they took time for us and had great tips for being in Kandy and to avoid tourist traps. The typical Sri Lankan breakfast was amazing and was taken at the promised great view. If we go back to Kandy one time we will definetly stay at Bernard's again!

    Mirco2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent hospitality in a wonderful house. Everything is just good about this place. Nice clean rooms, super nice terasses with amazing view. Good breakfast and best of all - the best hosts you can find. Bernard can even arrange tours for you -we went on the most amazing trek in the knuggle range. Can only recommend.

  • Ireans House was realy nice and quite. The view over the River was fantastic, she was always helpful.

  • 10/10 The property completely exceeded our expectations. It is right on the river. You have a large room with a large bathroom and can also use the kitchen and living area. The hospitality is exceptional. We received a very warm welcome and got great tips. The breakfast was super delicious, we were even allowed to request individual dishes. After our stay, we were driven by our own driver to the next accommodation for a fair price. We would always come back.

    Anneliese2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • Great spacious room with lovely balcony overlooking the peaceful river. Big comfy bed too! Irean was a fantastic host and cooked us a wonderful meal on arrival. Thank you!!

    Victoria2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Irean's place is a beautiful house and right next to the river. The rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable. They have a washing machine so that was a boon to us after traveling for over 10days and having a lot of soiled clothes :) Irean is very helpful with whatever you need. She made sure our stay was very comfortable.

    Gajanan2020-02-18T00:00:00Z

  • A perfect place to stay .. the host was very accommodating...and the accommodation was spacious and clean.. it a little bit of of the way from kandy town centre ..but the will always arrange transportation..at a minimal cost ..would definitely return to idyllic retreat

    Andrew2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • At dusk hundreds of fruit bats fly down along the river in silence and it is amazing to watch. that alone was worth the stay for me.

    Johnathan2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • A little bit outside from Kandy but there is a bus going a few times every hour. It's easy to get to the city center and back. Very friendly host and she is helping you with every thing and have some good tips for you. !the food is delicious and not expensive!

    Sherene's Homestay offers you with comforts of a cosy home.It is nestled within city limits allowing you to explore Kandy while enjoying a hike in Udawatte Kele sanctuary.Bed for two awaits to replenish you in a relaxed atmosphere.
    A cosy bedroom for two awaits you at our lovely home situated within the city limits of Kandy, Sri Lanka. Surrounded by the scenic view of Kandy hills, our home is just 1 Km from the temple of Tooth relic and only 1.5Km from the railway station and the bus stand. The bedroom contains a comfortable double bed with cotton sheets and pillows and has an attached bathroom.
  • I had a great stay at Sherene's place for 2 nights. The family's place is in a street full of beautiful large houses and the architecture of the home itself is amazing. Stayed on the ground floor (the room without the balcony) and the bed was one of the most comfortable I have slept in. Definitely worth paying the extra for the A/C in the warmer months, but you can decide for yourself when you get there. Sherene has uploaded a screen shot of Google maps in the AirBnB pics, worth using it as the live version of Google maps can send you in the wrong direction sometimes. Luckily she is easy to contact and fast to respond if your tuk tuk driver gets lost. Definitely check out the Botanical Gardens one afternoon if you are keen for a few hours of great walking to stretch the travellers legs. Her place is approx 350ish LKR to most places in town. I'm especially going miss Sherene's Mother in Law's wonderfull hospitality and her own mum's great conversation and literally the most lovely smile I have ever seen!

    Michael2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • The place so good , nice big private vill the area is very nice calm and quiet , not faraway from the centre like 10 min with Tucktuck with cost of 250~300 LKR , nice place I highly recommended .

    Hammy2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • I had a nice stay in the spacious, clean and comfortable room located in the beautiful house in the calm neighborhood. Sherene and her mother were very welcoming. Thank you very much!

    Marija2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • A quiet place and helpful and caring hosts. I recommand.

    Nicolas2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • Sherene and her family were lovely! The neighbourhood is very peaceful and perfect. The family even gave us some tips on where to visit in our super short time in Kandy. The room had everything that we needed. Would definitely recommend this place.

    Sophy2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • I had a pleasant stay at Sherene’s, who was very attentive and kind. I got some nice tips and had a brief chat with her husband. There is always somebody around the house, so coming and going is easy. The room is well maintained and has the basic equipment. The bathroom is clean and has warm water. Air conditioning would be extra, but there is a fan for free. I had breakfast only on the second morning, which was simple but really great, a pity dinner did not work out. The location is a bit off (which I was aiming for) but well in walking distance (15min) to Kandy Center. Only some Tuk-Tuk drivers would not use Google Maps or Pickme and then have problems finding it. Overall what I was looking for and thereby a solid recommendation!

    Christopher2020-01-08T00:00:00Z
  • An amazingly hospitable host, as this was the start of my trip in Sri Lanka, this would also be the start to some of the amazing hospitality I would receive. Recently I have been travelling mostly solo, when I use Airbnb so that I can find an incredible host I can stay with instead of just looking for a place on my own, well if that is also what you are looking for and you are going to Kandy then look no further, Sherene is the best!

    John2019-12-23T00:00:00Z

  • YOU HAVE TO STAY HERE! If you are visiting Kandy, Maya and Gamini's place is absolutely perfect! It's just up the hill from the crazy town centre and noise, the veiws are gorgeous and there is a great restaurant and supermarket just 10 minutes walk down the road. The place itself is very clean, super comfortable with a lovely bathroom and hot shower. The kitchen is also very cute with a little fridge and cooker. The best part though is Maya and Gamini. Their Sri Lankan breakfast is delicious and plentiful and we loved spending an hour and a half talking with them over breakfast both mornings. They have so many helpful tips and also were kind enough to book us a great driver down to Nuwara Eliya when the train was fully booked! Thank you both for having us, we hope we can stay again one day!

    Laura2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay in this wonderful house. Very clean, comfortable bed and everything was in excellent standard. The best part of our stay was definitely the fantastic hosts and the amaaazing breakfast! Would love to return :)

    Brage2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Maya and Gamini are incredible hosts and their little apartment is fabulous. Their home is in a quiet, leafy neighborhood and you feel like it's a reai retreat. They are attentive and helpful and serve delicious homemade breakfasts. When we had to leave early on our last day, they got up to make us tea and send us off, and they arranged a driver for us, too. We could have stayed here for a long time. Highly recommended!!

    Brian + LeeAnne2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • Maya and her husband are wonderful hosts and took very good care of everything. We really enjoyed our stay at their place! It’s a quite place a bit out of the busy center of Kandy - just what we were looking for. Can really recommend the Sri Lankan Breakfast they make.

    Sunita2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice place to stay, very clean and with everything you need! Great hospitality and helpful host. It is located between mountains, 10 minutes away by car from the noisy city center.

    Julia2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • This is a fantastic place to stay whilst in Kandy. The apartment is spacious, modern and comfortable and is in a much quieter area of Kandy. The view from the garden is lovely and you can walk into the main city in 20 minutes. Maya and Gamini are welcoming and friendly and so helpful with providing tips and assistance. We were unlucky in getting the train from Kandy to Ella but Maya and Gamini provided us with a genuine and lovely driver who took us all the way for a reasonable price. A highlight was the hosts welcoming you into their beautiful home for a traditional Sri Lankan breakfast which was delicious. Highly recommend - we only wish we could have stayed longer!!

    Anna2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • What a lovely place with lovely hosts we enjoyed the apartment and the breakfasts and the chats great hosts would recommend this place as somewhere lovely to stay 😎

    Tony2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • What can I say about these two lovely people Maya and Gamini. Fabulous communicators from first contact to booking. From booking till arrival. Everything was amazing. They even assisted us with an advance train booking which we couldn’t do from the UK via the official Railway Company. The room was lovely and clean. The setting chilled from the busy Kandy centre (as advised by them get the “Pick Me” app. It’s like a Sri Lankan Uber. It will really help you pay the actual rate rather than get ripped off by Tuk Tuks and Taxis). It’s a little way from the city but it’s welcome after the busy world of Kandy during the day. The breakfasts were lovely. We went for Sri Lankan options for both the nights we stayed. Interesting conversations over the breakfast table (we ate and they sat with us. Some people might not like that but I found it great). Breakfast would last an hour with chats and tea. Highly recommend this lovely Sri Lankan couple. Just such a pleasure to have spent time with them and in their home. Thanks from us!! XXXXXX

  • The most great experience we had in Kandy, is all due to our friendly, well knowing local traditions and very helpful host and his crew. And it’s not a joke - when you come to that place you get all the service you might need. Though the place is located not really in the city center, you just get fresh air, calm district and fantastic view instead. Many gratitudes to Douglas, the soul of that fine cozy castle. This man can solve any problem you come to him with!

    Ivan2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Mr. Douglas was very helpful and took care of us very well. We had an amazing time at Kandy. He even arranged for a tuk tuk which took us around Kandy. Thank you so much for the wonderful experience.

    Vaishnavi2019-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • It is wonderful place. Location is amazing. Mr. Douglas is amazing person and very helpful. Only one thing i would like to suggest if care taker can ask guest about breakfast options that would be great.

  • Hi everyone, Mr. Susil's place was just like a second home for my husband and me. A beautiful location amidst hills and unmatched hospitality made it stand apart for both of us. Some key highlights for us- 1. A beautiful location and an even beautiful room with the garden and privacy. 2. Mr. Douglas was highly service oriented. He was right there when we needed anything and allowed us to cook breakfast in the kitchen. 3. Mr. Susil Pereira was also there for sometime and it was a pleasure meeting the Gentleman. He offered us quick tips on local sightseeing areas and made us try Buffalo curd with kithul, which we absolutely loved. 4. A wonderful experience that made out holiday memorable. Keep it up Mr. Susil and Mr. Douglas. Thank you!

    Leo2018-08-10T00:00:00Z
  • The landlord was very enthusiastic, sent a sudden car to pick us up at home, and also made milk tea to receive us. The butler is very intimate. Every morning, we will ask us to have breakfast. The breakfast is especially rich, let us feel the warmth of home. The room is more beautiful than the picture. Come to Sri Lanka and definitely come here. The landlord was so enthusiastic that he sent a tutu to pick us up at home and made milk tea for us. The housekeeper is very considerate and asks us to have breakfast every morning. The breakfast is very rich, which makes us feel warm at home The room is more beautiful than the picture. You must stay here in Sri Lanka.

    莉婷2018-07-31T00:00:00Z

    1940's colonial era bungalow nestled in the hills between Kandy City and Royal Botanic Gardens. Set on sprawling garden, you are awoken by birdsong and lulled to sleep by the crickets' chirp. Enjoy Mangos and Bananas straight off the trees when in season! Home cooked Sri Lankan meals available on request. Whether you are an artist seeking inspiration or or just want a break from bustle of Kandy, this is the place for you! Note, we have separate listings for the two bedrooms available to guests.
    Nestled between the hustle and bustle of the Kandy city center and the serene beauty of the Peradeniya Royal botanical Gardens, is my colonial era family home. Built in 1948, it is set on a sprawling garden with beautiful lawn, tropical plants, exotic spice and fruit trees. The cool cement floors and the high tiled roof make the house naturally "air-conditioned" against the tropical heat. If you like to be woken by the chirping of birds or be lulled to sleep by the calling of crickets, our home stay is the ideal place for you during your visit to Kandy.

    Rayan Dale2020-03-20T00:00:00Z
  • Right after I arrived in Sri Lanka after a long flight, I drove with my rented TukTuk from Negombo to Kandy. Even if it was a fun ride, I was very exhausted when I arrived. That’s why I was looking for a quiet place to stay for my first night. Chamaris and Nilans house was even nicer as it looked like on the pictures. Everything was perfectly clean and the room was very cozy. Nilan and Chamari are both lovely and kind. I would love to visit them again!

    André2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Chamari and Nilan’s home is perfect - situated truly next to nature. They are very helpful and will give you the best tips on what to see around the area. I 100% recommend you have breakfast as well otherwise you’re missing out ^_^

    Eugen2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • It was the best stay in Sri Lanka. We stayed in seven places on the island and staying at Chamari and Nilan is beyond praise! Perfect cleanliness, stylish home, everything you need is in the room. Very nice hosts, we really enjoyed talking to them. We ordered breakfast from them. Very tasty and satisfying. Thank you so much for staying. I definitely recommend it. If we come to Kandy again, we will definitely stop at Nilan and Chamari.

    Artem2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent place, really next to nature and host are very supportive and excellent human kind. Thanks & Regards

    Sasyesh2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely place for the price. The house itself is very big, and the room is no exception. Big room with a big bathroom, check in was very easy and they were very polite and helpful.

    Alex2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Place with a beautiful view and very clean home.

    Paras2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay was amazing! This is exactly the kind of place we were looking for - a little bit out of town so that we are surrounded by quiet and nature, but not too far as it is just a 10 minute ride by scooter or tuktuk. The place is newly renovated and very comfortable. We stayed in 2 different rooms which were equally amazing! We originally planned a 3 night stay, but our flight for cancelled and the hosts arranged for us to stay in their other room immediately. We will not forget this amazing place and family that made us feel like at home. We miss it already! Thank you!

  • Very nice location, just outside of Kandy. We have enjoyed our stay.

    Marek2020-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • The house is so beautiful! Our room is large and clean. It is so enjoyable to take shower as the hot water and the bathroom is great. Also the breakfast is very delicious! The owner also do the laundry for us and call the tuktuk when we leave. All in all, it is wonderful to stay here! Highly recommend!

    Yancen2020-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at Dilrukshi's home was absolutely wonderful. We were offered some delicious local sweets with ceylon tea, which were a much needed refreshment after a long train journey. The house has been designed by an architect who has trained under Geoffrey Bawa and was a wonderful delight to stay in- open spaces, natural light, clean finishes. The breakfast was absolutely scrumptious and home cooked. Dilrukshi was kind enough to offer her umbrella to us and even dropped us to the bus station the day we were going to Sigiriya. I would highly recommend a stay here. It was probably the best stay in Sri Lanka for us.

    Ashima2019-08-31T00:00:00Z
  • Dil has a lovely home and is uniquely decorated. She was a wonderful host and cooked a delicious breakfast. Dil was really helpful because our stay coincided with the Colombo attacks. She kept us well informed about the curfew and also helped us arrange last minute transportation to Ella when all trains were cancelled. Thank you so much Dil!

    Moe2019-04-22T00:00:00Z
  • We got a recommendation for Dilrukshi´s place from my friends who stayed here last year and we were not disappointed at all. This place is very spacy and stylish, Dilrukshi gave us many advices about our trip and we enjoyed it here a lot. If you are looking for a quiet place (still 5 min by tuk tuk to the centre), this is the one for you.

    Alžbeta2019-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • Dilkrukshi is very very nice and a very well cook. The house is beautiful and it has a wonderful view!!

    River Valley Residence is located in a village surrounded by mountains, rice fields, lush greenery, birds and the breezy Mahaweli river (which is a short 3 minute walk). It is ideal for relaxation. There is also a bit of history in this area (called Sirimalwatte) that is associated with the last Kingdom of Kandy that existed till the 19th century. Eateries, shops and services (including a taxi stand) is within a walking distance of 300m. A pharmacy, medical clinic, communication centre, studio, beauty salon, tailor, barber, bakery, hardware store and a music entertainment shop are also in the vicinity. We can arrange a tuk tuk driver to help you run your errands. There are several attractions nearby like the Degaldoruwa Temple with ancient cave paintings, the Polgolla Dam, a monastery of nuns, the Lewella Fatima Retreat House and a meditation centre (to name some). In the city, travelers can visit the famous Sri Dalada Maligawa (Temple of the Tooth), Kandy Museum, Royal Palace of Kandy, Kandy Lake, World Buddhist Museum, Bahiravakanda Buddha Statue, Kandy View Point, Commonwealth War Cemetary, Udawattakele Sanctuary, Peradeniya Botanical Gardens, gift shops at the Kandy Central Market and many other attractions. Not to mention, there are local restaurants and traditional sweets to sample in town.
  • Stayed here for 5 nights, the host made us a huge delicious breakfast (vegan as requested) every day which set us up for all the activities we were doing in and around Kandy. The host was also immensely helpful (for example arranged a driver to take us to the station very early in the morning) and there are several small touches which enhance the experience, for example we really liked that there was a filtered water dispenser so we didn't have to buy so much bottled water. The place is a short tuktuk ride out of the city centre and not difficult to get to at all. The garden is idyllic, we enjoyed watching the exotic birds and seeing some naughty monkeys one morning trying to steal some fruit from a tree. This place was the best place we stayed in Sri Lanka.

    Emma2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • This place might seem a bit further from the center, but it's worth it not just for its nice surroundings but mostly for the warm and interesting hosts. If you have a talk with them, you'll learn not only about Sri Lanka but also about the spices they grow it their garden. Our best airbnb in Sri Lanka by a long shot.

    Tomas2020-01-09T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great time! Sena picked us up in Nuwara Eliya and drove us safely to the appartment with a few amazings stopps in between. The appartment is in a quiet area, which we liked. When you like to go to the city you need a tuktuk which takes you about 15min. We also had an interesting walk through his spice garden. Both are lovely people and we loved to stay here!

    Ylenia2019-09-17T00:00:00Z
  • We loved staying at river valley residence. Our room was clean and comfortable and our hosts, Dhanushri’s parents, were very welcoming and kind. We did a tour of the spice garden which was very interesting. Breakfast was great and it was lovely to chat with Dhanushri’s parents. The place is away from the busy streets of Kandy but easy to get to and close to the river where you can walk. We highly recommend staying here if you come to Kandy.

    Holly2019-08-31T00:00:00Z
  • The house lies in a peaceful and quite arrea just outside of Kandy. We didn't want to stay in the busy city so we loved it! Shanushris mother was very kind and welcoming. The room is big and clean. We highly recommend!

    Manon2019-08-01T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed our stay in Dhanushris guesthouse! It is located outside buzzing Kandy town which was perfect for us as we enjoyed the quietness and remoteness. During the night we left the windows open and enjoyed the fresh breeze from the nearby river. Every morning we were served a delicious Srilankan breakfast with fresh fruit right from her garden. Dhanushri was very helpful with organizing TukTuks and giving tips for local restaurants and must-sees... We can recommend her guesthouse and would come again!

    Juri2019-04-02T00:00:00Z
  • That's wondaful location. Host is very kind. Room is very clean.

    Megumi2019-03-27T00:00:00Z
  • Thanks for the welcome, we are glad to stay at the River Valley Residence. We were met by very hospitable owners, helped us rent a scooter and organized a trip to Adam Peak in his minivan.

    Annie2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • The room was great, just like the photos with a beautiful hammock and view on the balcony. The host was great in helping us with getting into town and to the train station the next morning. Was a quick stay so we managed to get into town only for a little bit (house is 10-15 mins out on the bus). Enjoyed our stay

    Harley2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed in Hesh's place for 1 night. Hesh's parents were our host.They welcomed us with a welcome drink and asked us about our plan.Supersweet ppl. The interiors of hall and room was was very beautiful as we saw in Airbnb.The view from the balcony was mesmirizing. Must visit stay if you are passing by kandy.

    Shivendra2020-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • Second stay at Hesh's place. Perfect as usual, great location, clean and beautiful, with delightful hosts! Definitely will book again when visiting Kandy

    Thishakya2020-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • This is the perfect place to stay in Kandy, especially if you choose to tour the area with the host. Chandra took very good care of me, making sure I got to try some local street food, had great views at the cultural show and Sacred Temple, and adjusting his schedule to get me to the airport. I loved the food, the hammock, the view, and Chandra and his wife!

    Katie2020-01-18T00:00:00Z
  • The property is great and well maintained. The hosts are really nice people and have loads of stories to share. They also provide local tours and information which is great for planning out day activities.

    Mayank2019-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • The place is great. It is situated a bit outside the city, which turned out to be lucky, as Kandy is very loud and busy. The way to the center takes 10 min with the bus and costs almost nothing, at night we went back with a tuk tuk. The room was tidy and prepared for our arrival, we got a free pick up from the main station on the first day which we really appreciated! The house is very stylish, host are extremely nice and helpful- especially the dad, he gave us some very good tips how to travel to Ella ! We extended the stay and it was not a problem, even though our room was booked- apparently there was another one, also with a balcony :) the only thing- when it’s rainy, do ask for a blanket, as it might get cold at night! Overall , 5/5. Thanks a lot!!! Sonia&Adam

    Sonia2019-12-04T00:00:00Z
  • We had a good time staying in Heshs place. His parents are very friendly and the check-in was super easy. We had everything we needed. They told us about the things you have to do in Kandy. Would recommend to stay there.

    No 26D is situated in an ideal location on a quiet lane just 20 meters from the Kandy Lake. It is next door to the famous Hotel Suisse and easy walking distance to the Kandy City Center and the Temple of the Sacred Tooth Relic. There is a roof top terrace with many flowering plants. It is sunny in the morning, and shaded in the afternoon. The terrace of the 26D has a panoramic view of Kandy Lake and the hills of Udawattekelle Sanctuary which is great for cool walks.
    Although No 26D is situated in such a convenient place with a 10 minutes walk to the Kandy city center, it is a very quiet and calm place. No 26D consists of an indoor garden and a rooftop terrace which would be perfect for bird watching or an afternoon slumber. Any guest will certainly feel home away from home without any doubt.
  • Staying at Jagath’s place was great for our short visit to Kandy. We were welcomed with tea and cookies, which was a lovely touch. The place was very clean and located on the ground floor, which made the air a bit stuffy, especially in the bathroom. However, we still enjoyed our time there a lot and the beautifully furnished house was conveniently located right by the lake. To get to the central part of the city we walked about 15 minutes. Overall, we can recommend staying with these attentive, flexible and kind hosts! Thanks gain for having us!

    Laura2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • We recommend for the ideal situation to visit Kandy (near the lake, near the city center ...). Good reception. We have benefited from the advice and responsiveness of Jagath which allowed us to manage our need by car with driver and organize an excursion to the Knuckles (in the jungle) with a super guide in half an hour (which was not planned !!). We are delighted and highly recommend.

    Philippe2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • We loved the location right next to Kandy Lake and we enjoyed the roof top garden. Jagath helped us by arranging a ride from Kandy to the airport. Thank you for taking such good care of us!

    Catherine2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • Jagath is really nice and a super host. The room was massive and very comfortable with a lovely view from the roof terrace. They helped us a lot with tips for the train to Ella which is always packed but because of them we got a ticket easily and last minute.

    Andrew2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • Nice place, recommended.

    Radek2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Jagath's place is in a really good position to explore Kandy. A short walk up a hill from the main road around the lake near Hotel Suisse. Only 20 minutes walk to the town centre, temple of the tooth, or to Arthur's Seat for a great panoramic view of Kandy. We only stayed 2 nights, arriving quite late on the first night, but could have easily stayed longer to explore more of charming Kandy. My only regret is not having enough time to spend chatting with Jagath & his family or trying the home cooked breakfast (not included).

    Kevin2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Very good place to stay quiet and olso close to town and Train/bus. Freindly host.

    Christian2020-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to explore Kandy. The room was very comfortable and Jagath and his wife were very friendly. We would recommend this place to anyone.

    My place is close to the city center, family-friendly activities, and public transport. You’ll love my place because of the coziness and panoramic view of Mountains & Udawatte Forest just adjoining to land. . My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, and business travelers.
    Structure of the room is very uncommon. Room is about 240 sq.ft and private balcony gives endless view of mountains. Attached bath with hot and cold water. Beautiful roof top terace helps you to relax yourself.
    This location is high residential area which is just 3 km away from the city centre. Panaromic view/ scenaries of mountains and surrounded by Udawatte sanctuary.
  • We had a great stay at Anjana's place. He was very welcoming, spoke great English, and made sure we had everything we needed to be comfortable. The location was slightly outside of town making it a bit more peaceful. And the rooftop deck had killer views of the sunset.

    Sage2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay in Kandy the room was perfect and the hosts were lovely.

    Marion2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • We highly recommend staying at Anjana's place. Great hospitality, amazing view from the room and rooftop, and very good breakfast were some of the best things that exceeded our expectations.

    Miloš2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed at Anjana’s for one night, as we were about to board the train from Kandy to Ella. Our room was spacious, clean and cozy. But the best feature was the common rooftop terrace, where we were treated to lunch, dinner and breakfast - all of them delicious. Not only did we get a takeaway lunch for the train ride, Anjana also have us a ride to the train station in the morning, as he needed to go to the town anyway. Altogether, a great stay.

    Simon2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • Anjana’s place is just as described: great hospitality, clean and comfortable room, delicious Sri Lankan dinner ordered off the a la crate menu. Get it, you won’t regret it! We were only there for one brief night but would’ve stayed longer.

    Halimah2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • We loved the location outside of the city centre with amazing sunsets. We ate dinner on the first evening which was delicious as was breakfast. Lovely hosts - you'll have a great stay.

    Karen2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • YOU WILL BE SURPRISED HOW NICE THEY ARE, REALLY NICE BUT NOT AT ALL INTRUSIVE. GO FOR IT.

  • Thank you for your hospitality and all the necessary information and tips you provided for my onward journey to Nuwara Elia. Had a wonderful stay at your place and the food was mouth watering, I will surely stay at your place in my next visit and recommend anyone who plans to visit candy . Thank you again Mr Anjana and family.

  • Great location near the lake! Had only one short night in the flat itself but very good value for the stay. The real highlights was the hospitality of the two brothers and one of them was our personal driver for the entire time, helping us make the most of our short time in Sri Lanka.

    Lucine2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Quite convenient location, good breakfasts: local cakes were given to us for the first time for several houses in Sri Lanka. The fruits are good, but not as much as the owners give on the coast. Hot water in the bathroom must be turned on at the entrance. Wifi is great. Recommend.

    Igor2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • Loved staying with Navinda and his brother. They were so hospitable, polite and kind. We arranged a pick-up and drop-off from the airport an Navinda also arranged tours to see local sights for the 3 days we were there. The house is lovely with a beautiful view. And we would love to stay there again on our next trip to Kandy. The breakfast was delicious and the accommodation was really comfortable.

    Saunak2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic place to stay with breathtaking views of the hills. Breakfast was perfect on both days. And Navinda was accommodating to our requests. There was a cockroach in two of the rooms on one of the evenings but I guess that’s common in Sri Lanka and did not affect our stay just something to be weary of! Thank you Navinda!

We had beautiful views and the boys showed attention to detail with it all. It was fabulous. The room was a little dark and the walls a little thin but overall it was great and we would stay again. Location is fab. Walking distance to the lake and a couple of hotspots.

    Helen2020-01-23T00:00:00Z

You don’t even notice that there is no AC because even at night is does not get hot in the rooms and you also have a fan. It is a stunning house with an amazing view. For the Tuk Tuk from the Bus Station Kandy we just payed 100rs. Vinodhani is really an extraordinary Person and was the nicest host we ever had.

  • Camillus by his real name Rayman is a very involved host, he easily provided me with some tips and tricks to get around Kandy. He was attentive to perfection, the perfect host! Thank you

    Lorenzo2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • Camillus is such an amazing host. I felt right at home. The view from the balcony is beautiful. It is a perfect distance from town, to be away from the hustle and bustle of the city, but still only a quick walk or tuk-tuk away. I highly recommend staying here when visiting Kandy.

    David2020-01-25T00:00:00Z
  • Camillus is trult kind and hea knows hoe to host people. The place is near to the city centre, but exacly as far (max 8 minutes to walk) that you can hear the nature sounds not buzzling city noise.

    Laura2020-01-24T00:00:00Z
  • We were there for one night. Nice people and place.

    Sandija2020-01-18T00:00:00Z
  • We had an amazing time at Camillus’ place. He and his wife were extremely warm, friendly, and welcoming, and we got really close in this short period of time. Me and my girlfriend spent a lot of time chatting with Camillus. He shared local knowledge as well as general Sri Lanka traditions, such as cooking. The most magical thing was when we got to cook dhal together with Camillus’ wife – very spontaneously! A lovely memory. The room is neat and tidy and has everything you need (AC!). There’s a shared kitchen and bathroom in a corridor. The apartment building lies on a steep hill, very calm area, close to the train station – both by walking or tuktuk. It just felt like very, very nice being there, and spending time with this warm couple. A true AirBnB experience. Can’t recommend it enough.

    Johan2020-01-17T00:00:00Z
  • Good location in the city center, all within walking distance. Perfect cleanliness, the price includes breakfast, the owner is always ready to help and answer any question

    Valentina2020-01-16T00:00:00Z
  • Camillus is such a terrific guy, really friendly and super helpful. Staying at his place was great. Great location, a short walk from the amazing Kandy hilltop temple and easy access to the lake and all of the surrounding shops and restaurants. Would definitely recommend the place

    Lance2020-01-15T00:00:00Z
  • Camillus and his wife made us feel very welcome during our stay in Kandy! Their space is lovely and centrally located (about a 10 minute walk from the town centre). They were very accommodating and communication was so easy! Would recommend staying here.

    Authentic homestay run by me and my mother who cooks lovely Sri Lankan cuisine. 5 mins tuk-tuk (15 mins walk) to the town, with a beautiful view of the Lake & Temple of Tooth. If it is Authentic Sri Lankan Family Home Experience & Home Cooked Cuisine mixed with Luxury you are looking for, this is the place. Transportation can be arranged. We do tourism because we love the experience and talking with interesting travelers.Hope you are one of them!
    It is a real Homestay where we also live in the property but guests have separate access to their room.
    The neighborhood is just 15 minutes walk (5 mins tuk-tuk ride) to the town with beautiful views of the Kandy lake and Temple of Tooth.
  • Umanga is an easily approachable host. From handling our apprehensive, worry-ridden pre check in queries to laying our restless thoughts to rest about what to see and what to miss, he handled our Kandy Experience, like a true professional. I would definitely recommend Umanga's easily accessible property for a truly rewarding stay.

    Varun2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent host, the room was very clean. I would highly recommend the home cooked dinner and breakfast too.

    Ivi2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • Simple furnishings. On the second floor of the house, there is a table outside the room where you can sit and chat with friends. The water pressure in the bath was a bit low, and the water flow was a bit small. It is an economical place to stay.

    2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely stay at Umanga’s place! Very friendly person, deliciously prepared breakfast, the room and the bathroom very clean and comfortable. There was even a kettle and some tea in the room, which was lovely! Would have loved to stay with Umanga for more than one night.

  • Mangelika is the nicest person and the best host you can hope for. Theirs colonial house is really amazing and spacious and the garden is so beautiful as well. If you are interested, you should definitely do the cooking class with Mangelika! That was by far the best food we ate during our month long trip across Sri Lanka. To go to the citiy, you have to take a tuctuc or Uber, witch only cost you arround 200 to 300 Rupies one way. If you can imagine, I can very much recommend this place to everyone.

    Eno2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • A good place to relax and enjoy the nature and spend a good time

    Akeel2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • A great address. A bit far from the center but it is absolutely not a drawback, on the contrary. In a very quiet area, in a pretty house and the owner is very caring ... Very easy to reach the center by rickshaw.

    Julien2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • Indrika and his Mom are lovely people. the bunglow is an exceptional property in the middle of greenery. a perfect lawn with covered sitting area. my friends and i stayed in the bunglow just for a day. had a wonderful breakfast made by host with local sri lankan dishes and english breakfast.

    Krati2020-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • We were a given the whole bungalow...very spacious...lovely hostess...everything about the place is awesome and totally recommended !! The hostess was also very helpful, friendly and always cheerful. She made a point that my parents and myself were totally comfortable with the place, the food and the beds. The bathrooms were clean. The bungalow has this old world charm. Thank you madame for everything !

    Ashok2019-12-21T00:00:00Z
  • Indrika is an extra host! Available, smiling and full of good advice His beautiful family home is welcoming with a beautiful garden We really recommend this house.

    Simone2019-03-21T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect stay. The house is beautiful, the welcome was warm, there was everything necessary. Indrika's mom is very caring and kind. She will know how to give you the best advice and arrange tuk-tuks and drivers if needed. I can only recommend the cooking lesson with her who was great. In short, a great stay and very nice memories. I recommend !

    Romane2019-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice quiet and calm place with beautiful garden. Old house, old rubber plantation bungalow built beginning 1900. If you like old, colonial style houses, this is for you. Only drawback is it’s bit further from supermarket & restaurants than expected, would say 20min walk. Also, might be good to know, the couple lives in the house so you are not renting the whole place if that is what you are expecting. They are very friendly and helpful, we did not mind at all.

  • Gayantha (the owner ) was very friendly person and their service was very appreciative. Breakfast was far better than expected. Place was very calm quiet and relaxing.

    Madhawa2020-01-31T00:00:00Z
  • Hospitality: Gayantha & his family members are incredible. They were accommodating and very quick to respond with any questions. Gayantha is also flexible with check-in and check-out time, which was extremely helpful. The place was very clean and had all of the amenities listed. The breakfast was fantastic (western) & filling. I was lucky enough to get some milk rice (Kiri bath in Sinhalese) on the full moon Poya day. The taste reminded me my grandma she used to cook milk rice on the very first day of every month 😊 Location: The place is very clean & tidy. The views are amazing & best for relaxation. The location is 4KM from Kandy Railway Station. Taxi hailing app Pickme is the ideal choice for trishaw (tuk) rides (around LKR 150 via Sri Dhammassiddi Mawatha). For a walk from the location to the town, take Sri Dharmapala Mawatha to the “Raa Kade Junction” (15 mins) & can take a bus from there to reach the Kandy town. Overall experience: It’s a super deal for this price. You’ll enjoy their breakfast for sure. Also you’ll truly feel home!

    Praba2019-07-16T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful location and place to stay 🙂

    Nandika2019-03-22T00:00:00Z
  • Check in was straightforward the location is a bit out of town but was not a problem for me. The hosts are very nice, breakfast was also very good. For a short stay in Kandy sufficient.

    Mihriban2019-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • This spot is ideal for respite while in Kandy. The views are astonishing and you can watch the sunrise from your private balcony. It is a little out of the city which is exactly what I wanted as very quiet, you can walk down and up easily if you are practicing for the various hikes! I’d 100% stay again. The family are all very kind and breakfast was delicious.

    Joey2019-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • The accommodation was very good and the best internt in my whole stay in Sri Lanka. Would certainly go back exactly ..... Because price performance was very good.

    Judith2019-01-29T00:00:00Z
  • This is the most beautiful of the three homes I have come to live in Sri Lanka! ! ! Located on a beautiful mountainside, a very good family, a bathroom in the room, a large kitchen, you can cook for yourself, or a washing machine and microwave, hair dryer, very complete, the kitchen has coffee and black tea to cook by yourself Drink, breakfast is very rich, the father of the landlord at night also came to check if the window is closed for me. I have had a very pleasant 3 days here, and I have only one guest for these three days, one person enjoys this big room. I am most satisfied with the bed in the room, unlike the white sheets of the hotel and many homestays, the room also has free water, and the map back here, it is completely home feeling, it will make you very I love everything in this room. If you come to Kandy, I highly recommend it to everyone. The price is very high~

    Abby2018-07-22T00:00:00Z
  • The room was very good and comfortable and the accommodation had all the equipment you needed. The lunch served by the host was excellent! Room very well located. The only negative is the very strong smell of mothball in the room and the bathroom !! It was everywhere and it gave me a headache!

    Great view of the Kandy city from Hanthana mountain will calm your mind and body.
  • Syamala is the perfect host. Kind, attentive, supportive and overall friendly. She made an amazing Sri Lankan breakfast you must no miss. The location is off the city center and you better hail a ride but it is also a little escapism. The house is beautifully furnished with antique set of chattels but the rooms lack no comfort. They are spacious, clean and comfortable.I’d say you don’t find a much better deal. If we pass Kandy again, we will stay here again! One more thing: for our onward trip Syamala got us a personal driver for a reasonable price so we could pass through the highland visiting the ramboda waterfalls and the damro tea factory. I recommend doing this rather than going by train. Lastly the breakfast is a must (local Sri Lankan) freshly made and so tasty!

    Hans2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Highly recommend as long as your ok with not being walking distance from the city. So nice to get away from the hustle and bustle of Kandy and be in a perfectly quite neighborhood. Very beautiful area with lots of space to relax. Breakfast was AMAZING! PERFECT! DELICIOUS!

    Nikolai2020-01-17T00:00:00Z
  • The owner Shamala is really kind and kind. We just stayed in the New Year, but for breakfast we served Sri Lankan New Year's dishes, fresh juices and teas were always served, and we were exhausted. It doesn't mean that you're being overly interfered with, but you can talk to anything if you want, but basically it feels like you're free to spend your time focusing on your privacy. I think it fits the Japanese sense very well. Rooms are spacious and clean, bathrooms and toilets are also clean. Upon consultation, they also arranged for Ayurveda. The owner is fluent in English and can talk a lot. The only trouble was the first pick-up, he said that he would pick me up if he called 30 minutes before arriving at the candy, but it was a little difficult to exchange English on the phone, and where and how long should I wait? It was difficult to understand. If you are waiting at the station, a driver with a card will call you. Also, because it is in the suburbs, you need a tuk-tuk to travel to and from the city. Especially on the way home from the city, you can download PICK ME app (Sri Lanka version UBER) and search for "Kandy grand paradise".

    友一郎2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • The landlord was very nice and warm, carefully informed the housing situation, and asked about the sleep status of the day the next day, as well as breakfast preparations are very rich ~

    江渝2019-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • super nice host and the room was exactly the same as the photos. Place was quite, clean and relaxed, but location is a bit away from city. Must try the homemade breakfast which is very nice! Would love to stay again next time

    Puiying2019-12-05T00:00:00Z
  • Highly recommend!The hostess is warmhearted and kind! The house is very beautiful as described,totaly I will give a fIVE-STAR.

    Zhiying2019-04-08T00:00:00Z
  • The best place to stay in Kandy! The house is beautiful and just far enough outside the city for peace and quiet while still being able to access downtown Kandy easily. The room was extremely clean with a comfortable bed and Syamala is the best host! She goes out of her way to make sure your stay is perfect. She helped organize a tuk tuk driver and always had great suggestions of things to do. Definitely have at least one dinner while you are here, her cooking is incredible and both breakfast and dinner were excellent. I could not have asked for a nicer time in Kandy and cannot recommend this place enough! Thanks Syamala!

    Andrew2019-04-02T00:00:00Z
  • Syamala's cooking was the best we had in 16 days in Sir Lanka and that's saying something! Definitely eat dinner here if you're staying. She is also a warm and generous host and her house in spacious and clean. Hot water and AC both worked well. It's a beautiful quiet location in the hills (10-15 min tuk-tuk to central Kandy). Highly recommended!

  • Mr. Wilson is a wonderful host. He always responded to all my questions quickly. He even stocked the kitchen with bread, eggs and jam for our breakfast, which saved us the day we arrived because we hadn't stopped to buy any food. He drew a superb map for us that highlighted all the sites see in Kandy and it was very useful. All in all, we had a fantastic stay and would highly recommend Mr. Wilson's Safe Haven.

    Devasree2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Wilson has a lovely place in Kandy. Located close to the lake, this is a beautiful villa and we loved staying there. It is very well maintained.

    Vidya2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • The legendary grandfather of the landlord is really well-deserved, the communication is smooth, the thoughtful and thoughtful, and we gave us bread, bananas, milk and water for free! After explaining how to use the house, give us the keys and leave! Believe us very much! If you have a chartered car, family travel is the first choice here! In addition, we ate on the outdoor terrace in the morning, it was a beautiful scenery, envy others! recommend

    翘楚2020-01-30T00:00:00Z

    轶汝2020-01-29T00:00:00Z
  • The house is about 10 minutes' walk from the lake, which is close or not, and that it is far away. The value for money is still very high, the host is very friendly and the people are very nice. There is no shopping nearby, there is a large shopping mall about 30 minutes to the other side of the lake. Beautiful house, good choice for crowds

    2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • It's value for money and Wilson is a very good host.

    Huiran2020-01-25T00:00:00Z

    Ragav2020-01-23T00:00:00Z
  • Safe Haven was perfect for us. Wilson kindly met us, even though we ran a bit later than expected, and spent time walking us through the house, answering questions, and went to the trouble to map out a few key things we asked about. Very kind. The home was super clean, offered a nice washing machine, which we gratefully made use of, and since we were self- driving, we appreciated the free parking. Watching the monkeys was quite delightful, and getting into town was easy.

    A traditional colonial style house in the peaceful area of Kandy View Gardens, on the hillside of Kandy town, with stunning views across the valley and the opposite hillside. Only a short 10 minute drive by car or ride by Tuk Tuk to the town centre and Sacred Temple of the Tooth. The house is perfect for both groups of friends and big families looking for a relaxing place to stay. Spend your evenings watching the sunset from the living room, bedrooms, back garden or one of the balconies.
  • Kandy's mountainside, 180-degree windows and doors, 2 living rooms, 3 rooms, 3 toilets. Five of us lived well. Overlooking the town, it is picturesque. The mountain winds are a bit strong at night and the sleep is a little bit cold, but there are no extra blankets or quilts. It's comfortable during the day, but I basically play outside. The restaurant is large and the kitchen utensils are complete enough to cook noodles, toast, hot water, fried eggs, etc. The only dissatisfaction was wifi. The password given on the first day was wrong. None of our three iphones could access the Internet, but the housekeeper thought that there was a problem with our mobile phone. Back the next day, the password given was correct, and finally I can happily go online. The housekeeper was still nice when I left. Recommended.

    Spring2020-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place to stay. Villa is very big, clean, cozy and beautiful. Located at the top hill with spectacular view.

  • Babo Villa was a wonderful entry into the beautiful hillsides of Kandy. The views were spectacular and the interior of the house was thoughtfully and comfortably arranged. We thoroughly enjoyed drinking our morning tea out on the balcony to take in the stunning and picturesque views of the mountains. James and Frances were incredibly helpful throughout the entire booking process and responded quickly to all of our messages. We would definitely stay again!

    Ashley2019-10-11T00:00:00Z
  • Babo villa offers an unique experience visiting Kandy. Offering a picturesque view of the hills and even more breathtaking skies, it’s truly great value. The close proximity to the city centre was rather amazing since traveling was rather convenient and cheap. While there were a few reviews mentioning the care taker to be rude and drunk, I never had this occurrence, he was rather helpful and very well mannered. Thank you for a rather amazing stay. Regards, Kaushal

    Kaushal2019-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place with a very good view of the Kandy City. Also the place is well maintained & care taker is courteous & extremely helpful.

    Jigar2019-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • Overall great place with a great view, beware of stray dogs, they are not vicious, but they will try to steal your shoes at night, if you leave it outside the house.

    Egor2019-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Very stylish villa with a beautiful view of the night view and the daytime, with a look at Kandy, the decoration is also very high-class classical English, kitchen equipment washing machine drying rack should have. Need to say that the shortcoming is that the road is not very easy to find, at night to go to the top of the hill for a few laps, in short, the price is super high must go to experience!

  • The landlord is two doctors, the English is great, and the communication is barrier-free. The rooms are very clean, with amenities such as hair dryers, sewing boxes, kitchens downstairs, pots and pans, kettles, etc. The bathroom is very clean and has a free shampoo and more. Overall very satisfied! The room has a conversion plug! The landlord’s daughter is studying medicine in Dalian and is very friendly to the Chinese! Generally recommended

  • Devika’s place is sitting middle of mountain and the view is stunning. She and her husband extremely helpful and warm. We definitely will go back.

    Cameron2019-09-05T00:00:00Z
  • We spent 2 days at Devika, and we did not regret it. The house is large, and the 2 rooms we occupied were spacious and independent. We highly recommend this rental on the heights of Kandy, far from the hubbub and pollution. Thank you for welcoming Devika and her husband.

  • Super guest house, with a picturesque view of the river, which could also be seen from our spacious and comfortable room through a panoramic window. Irean helped us on all issues and was very welcoming, thank you very much. Thanks also to the driver Peter for the trips that he arranged for us at a reasonable price and for the attentive attitude towards us.

    Pavel2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • We had lovely stay in Riverview. Our room was comfortable, spacious with lovely view. Irean she’s lovely host.

    Lidia2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Irean is a wonderfully kind woman who will stand up for you if your tuktuk driver is trying to rip you off (true story)! The space is gorgeous and the view will make it worth the distance from downtown. Don’t hesitate to book and stay there!

    Katherine2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • We really liked it at Irean. The room was clean and the internet pretty quick for the location. Unfortunately, the accommodation is a bit difficult to find, but once you have found it, it is great to reside there. :) The view is very idyllic and we even saw a flock of bats flying past our balcony one evening - that was really a highlight: D :) The only criticism is that we didn't have air conditioning in the room, only two fans, which were not sufficient to cool the room were .. otherwise everything was great! :)

    Kim2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • The house likes it, the scenery is nice, the living is very comfortable, it is a little distance from the main city, you need to take a taxi in advance, and there is parking space for self-driving. If you live here, don't miss the evening scenery!

    Vincent2020-02-05T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely place, lovely owners. Unfortunately I forgot to reply Irean‘s message regarding dinner, so she and her husband were that kind and drove us to a restaurant to get some food for take away! And additionally it was one of the best Kotthus I had so far :) And the place is really nice!!

    M. Clarissa2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • Great place and Irean’s hospitality adds the home stay touch. The breakfast was yum too. Totally recommend

    Nisha2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • I loved staying at Irean's. It was a great first introduction to Kandy. It was peaceful and beautiful. I couldn't have asked for more. I highly recommend getting breakfast at Irean's, I loved trying Sri Lankan food and hers was amazing. Thank yo Irean!

  • Our two nights at Hesh's place were really nice. They picked us up from the train station and took us to the homestay. Helped us out the best they could and cooked really delicious dinner for us. It's a bit out of town so we had to catch a tuk tuk or a bus but it only takes 10 minutes into Kandy town.

    Paulina2020-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect location away from the hustle and bustle of Kandy City. Close to the bus and only LKR15 into Kandy. The room was awesome with a very comfy bed and a hammock to boot. Best shower since arriving in Sri Lanka!

    Emma2020-01-13T00:00:00Z
  • Hesh‘s parents took really good care of us! We had some issues with our luggage and we were so grateful that they organized everything for us. It felt like a second home. Thank you!

    Nina2019-12-09T00:00:00Z
  • The place which is like 15 minutes away from kandy city was the best place we’ve stayed so far. It’s super clean and very lovely furnished. The hosts are super friendly and offer a free pick up service from rail way station if needed. If not, the given directions are very good. The hosts also offer lots of different day trip tours etc. You also can get breakfast, lunch and dinner. I’ve just had breakfast which was a bit overpriced ($5) but in general this place is a visit worth.

    Tim2019-09-20T00:00:00Z
  • Very friendly host! An airport pick up has been arranged for us also in the middle of the night.

    Hannah2019-09-12T00:00:00Z
  • Very Nice place. Very clean and cosy and Hesh and Lakshmi are Very nice and warm people. Highly recommend this place!

    Guilliana2019-09-06T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice service including pick up from train station. The room was also super comfortable and clean, we had a great time! Only the breakfast was unexpectedly pricey (5 USD/person) for a basic one. We recommend to ask for the price in advance or to rather ask for cheaper options in the neighborhood (they offer that as well, so don’t feel bad not taking their breakfast offer). But everything else was perfect! Thank you for this nice stay 🌞

    Johanna2019-09-03T00:00:00Z
  • Such a fun place to stay, and it was made easy for us when everything was so well spelled out and organized! We had a great time and highly recommend Hesh's place!

  • We arrived exactly when the sun was about to set, so as soon as we dropped our bags to our room, we were served a cup of local tea with an amazing view on top of the house. The host was very friendly and to our surprise knew a lot about our little home country Estonia. The room was clean and peaceful. We had a very nice rest. There were towels, hair dryer and basic shower essentials as well as AC and wifi. We were offered a breakfast for some extra money ($5 for a whole breakfast which was so good that we found ourselves skipping lunch). As we had to leave early, we had to ask for it to be served around 7 but it wasn't a problem at all. To conclude, the host was very helpful, flexible and definitely made it to our highlights list of our Sri Lanka trip, especially considering the short time we got to spend there.

    Moonika2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Nice rooftop view with breakfast and dinner. Anjana was a great host and drove us to Sigiriya and the airport. Would highly recommend!

    Lucia2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • Very kind hosts! The place has a great view for sunsets. It's definitly worth staying. You will always need a Tuk Tuk to / from the location.

    Kristin2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • This is a wonderful apartment. Fully match the photos. The price tag is extremely adequate. Behind the windows of palm trees, monkeys are running on the roofs, the forest is noisy with the cries of birds. Great menu, large portions and very tasty. The owner is cordial and helped a lot with travel tips, told how easy it is to get to certain points and about the island itself. Extremely positive impressions.

    Georgiy2020-01-23T00:00:00Z
  • The host cooked us dinner even it was about 10pm when we arrived. The meals are delicious, the view from the balcony is amazing.

  • The house is very beautiful and spotlessly clean, but it is a bit off in the location. On the mountain, you have to hit the car every time, but it is quiet and you can enjoy the sunrise. The grandpa was very nice, and arranged a reliable driver for us, only 70 yuan a whole afternoon.
